KIDNEY CLEANSE

Kidney Cleanse 

I recently embarked on a 4 day kidney cleanse. "Why are you doing a kidney cleanse?!" said everyone! Well rewind about 2 and a half years ago, I moved from my home town, this small little mountain town, to the city for the first time. Long story short, the move took a toll on me emotionally, which definitely transferred to my physical health. Your mind, body connection is a huge part of your overall wellbeing. Leaving the one place I knew, starting up a brand new life, and saying goodbye to friends and family I was close to was a lot to process, & emotionally, it was the hardest thing I've ever done. Without going off on an entire story about this, I'll save it for another blog, and fast forward back to health going downhill. I went to a few acupuncturists for a lagging knee injury that yes, they fixed in three sessions... another blog post. lol. Clearly I need more time to blog... anyways... They both said I had weak kidneys. Random huh? So I looked into it further, and your kidneys play a very important role in the rest of your bodies functions. It's our filtration system for toxins to be eliminated, & when the kidneys are weak, our other organs start to work in overdrive. A kidney cleanse made the most sense to jumpstart my body back to health & clean my bodies "air filter."

One of the accupuncturist recommended Global Healing Center's oxy-powder when I originally went there for my knee injury. I was having digestive issues, not feeling myself, & although skeptical, I was open to trying whatever these things were. Although things were going well, each of the seven dimensions of wellness: social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, occupational, intellectual and physical wellness where being tested. No wonder my body was going through health issues!
